OUCH -- caught in a trap

May 3, 2014, 7:07 PM |

Well... this was a disaster.  No two ways about it.  Disaster start to finish despite the prep.

Recall my goals:

1.  Try my best, feel like I'm focusing.  Nope.  We didn't really get far enough but considering the mistakes I made, I say BBBBUUUZZZZZ.... sorry, that's INCORRECT... do not pass go, do not collect $200.

2.   Do NOT give the opponent an easy win.  Make him work for it.

Considering I lost in a very short amount of time, goal #2 wasn't met either.

3.   Survive the opening.  BBUZZZZ.  (sigh)

I'm only annotating to hopefully learn from this and not have it happen again (I'm sure it will but the more I am aware, hopefully the less it will occur).  

Well, here we go.   Please leave your laughter at the door.
